Henrietta Officer’s for 2011-12 are (front) Klayton Hoff, Connor Kirby, Ethan Cantrell, (middle) Annelise Sauer, Ryan Crafton, Katie Coleman, Braiden Obermier, (back) Trent Yurcho and Katie Jo Blanscet.

With FFA welcome signs posted outside communities all across the country, Henrietta FFA is the next chapter to announce their hospitality.

The Henrietta FFA placed welcome signs at three locations around the city limits of Henrietta this spring. The three blue and gold signs read “Henrietta FFA Welcomes You.”

They were placed east of Henrietta on Hwy. 82, north of Henrietta on U.S. Hwy. 148 and west of Henrietta on Hwy. 82. The signs are located on the property of Dr. and Mrs. Leroy Schaffner, Mr. and Mrs. John Hodgin, and Toby McClain.

The signs were placed in their designated locations by the Henrietta FFA Chapter Officers.   Officers are Ryan Crafton, Katie Coleman, Connor Kirby, Trent Yurcho, Ethan Cantrell, Braiden Obermier, Annelise Sauer, Klayton Hoff and Katie Jo Blanscet.

Students in Shane Crafton’s agriculture science class primarily constructed the signs.  The letters were donated by Express Welding of Henrietta.

FFA helps the next generation grow to meet those challenges by leading its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career options.

The National FFA Organization was founded by a group of young farmers in 1928. Their mission was to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population. Today that mission has expanded.  The National FFA website said that the organization envisions a future in which all agriculture education students will discover their passion in life and build on that insight to chart the course for their education career and personal futures.
